Great trip

Very nice landscape, very good tour guide. Warning: there will be some steps to climb on this tour. So light, short pants are more popular than long jeans. It is also better for the boat tour. Otherwise everything went great.

Fantastic experience

Hui our guide was a machine, he told us many interesting things and was aware of us at all times. Few people in the group and comfortable bus. Take a lot of mosquito repellent, bite even under long pants.

We were twenty people can we compare this to a small group? But everyone was charming and chatting with everyone. The boat ride to the temple 1 hour on the way and 1 hour on the return is a bit boring.

Great guide and a good day

The Perfume Pagoda in the off season is great. Very few people and the weather was comfortable.

tour guide knowledgeable, explained perfectly what the day entails. Overall a great tour
